    A Self Portrait of The Photographer As A Holga Photographer....

    I did this on Sunday at the Utah Arts Fest.
    Just thought I'd share.
    I was going for the "artist look".
    Am I am "artist looking enough"?

    Don't artists wear a berets, rather than ball caps?

    You have the earnest artist look nailed, though.

    very ----artsy


    the Holga looked distinguished and---oh yeah you did too! ;)

    I wasn't trying to change society, or to be ahead of my time.
    I didn't think of myself as liberated, and I don't believe that I did anything important.
    I was just myself. I didn't know any other way to be, or any other way to live."

    Goodness, no! You need a beret, a form-fitting black turtleneck sweater, goatee, spiked crew cut, edgy angular glasses, cigarette, and an angst-filled yet smug look on your face. And a highball glass in your hand.

    And you should be perched on a stool in front of some freaky wall hanging.


    Right now you look like a photographer.
